"Love" ATC's

Good morning everyone.  This is Cheri from DJ's Sundries.  I decided to make some ATC's to share with you today.  I really like Artist Trading Cards (aka ATC's) - maybe its because I collected baseball cards when I was younger.  Anyway, these are much prettier than baseball cards and fun to make too.  Grab some pretty ribbon from 3 Girl JAM and play along.

I used:
3 Girl JAM Antique White crinkle ribbon which you can find here.
Chipboard - cut to 2.5 X 3.5
Red and grey Coredinations paper
Versamark ink
Hero Arts - Vintage Brocade mini background stamp
White embossing powder
Small off white roses
Creative Inspirations paint - Tutu Pink and Coal
Spellbinder's Labels #3
Vintage Valentine images from Etsy
Glossy Accents
"Be My Valentine" paper from The Paper Studio

I really like the elegance of these little morsels.  However, I had to add some fun too.  Curious?  Head over to DJ's Sundries to see how I finished them off.  I think it will make you smile.

~~ Live Each Moment ~~ with jessica b

Well, Hi There 3 Girl JAMmers
Jessica B here with a Tuesday Project to  share with ALL of YOU!!!

I was so happy to get back into crafting mode after a VERY LONG time away from sharing some projects.  I created a card using a St. Patrick's Day color scheme and some fun other  elements.

I started with a 4.25" x 4.25" black card base.  I cut two Persian Motifs from my Spellbinders  set.  The largest motif,  green polka dot pattern paper, is from the amy tangerine - Sketchbook paper pad.   The smaller green motif, is from Core' Produce Green card stock.  I cut a black circle using my 2" circle punch to place behind the smaller motif.  The sentiments are from a Unity KOM , and were fussy cut after stamping on white card stock.   I used lots of foam squares for dimension.

 Because I like to stick with things that make me smile....of course there is some 3 G irl JAM Crinkle Ribbon on my card.  The small bow was made using my Bow Maker and Sterling Crinkle Ribbon (Celebrations Bundle).

But, that's not all....
The Flair Button in the center of my card is also from 3  Girl JAM.

It is from of the Christmas Flair Set 
(psssttt... which is in the shop for only $2.99 right now)

. . . and look, on a card in February....WHOOP...SCORE...BONUS!!!!

I am glad to be back and hope you feel inspired by my card today!
Feel free to swing by my Personal Blog and peek around.  I haven't posted a lot lately, but
there is sure to be some fun stuff that you may not have seen yet!

Keep Crafting
~Jessica B.

Happy 1st Birthday

Hello all, Jovan here from Cards by Jovan.  I have a super cute birthday card to share with you today!  This card is for a friend to give to her daughter who LOVES  Chica on sprout. 
 I got the image off the internet and a dear blog friend colored her in photoshop for me. I added a wobble to Chica for FUN!  I cut the one out with my cricut and used the birthday cuttlebug folder for embossing the background.  I used Christmas Candy ribbon and made my bow with the 3GJ bow maker.  
I hope you enjoyed my card today!

In Pink

Hi, Rebecca from Bloomingpink Studios here on this wonderful Friday morn to show you this little lush of a message I put in my husband's briefcase this morning.

Saucey, yes?  Well, maybe a little....


I decided that livin' in suburbia, in my mid years with grown kids and all my youthful risk far behind me....

....well, let's just say...I thought little somethin' somethin' to spice up a relationship now and then might be sort of fun?

HA.  I won't tell you if it worked, but it was sure fun to make anyway.

This card is what is sometimes referred to as a hybrid card.  It includes print product (I created and printed), stamping and embellishments!

Those nails...by the way...


Never was able to fashion anything that grand.

Anyway, you see the fabulous ribbon, and you know where to get it!

And you know it's fabulous!

Alrighty, then, I gotta go paint the town (and my nails) Pink.

Have yourself a WONDERFUL weekend...and remember

Make Something Beautiful

and share it with us on the Challenge blog!
Anything with a ribbon and you're golden!

(but tonight...I'm donned in Pink!)

Fun Frames

Hey Hey Crafters its me Scrappin Madge! Today I am the Featured Designer here at 3 Girl JAM!! Today's project was so fun to make, and the 3 Girl JAM Crinkle ribbon was the finishing touches on this project.

Here is what I have created for you.  
 I found this fun fold frame in my stash, and thought how fun this would be to make using different patterns of paper and embellishments along with the amazing 3 Girl JAM Crinkle Ribbon!!!

Here is a close up of the girl and the fun saying that I use to say when playing the clapping game with my friends.

I am sure you are wondering what fabulous bundles of Ribbon I used when I created this fun project.  Well here you go I used the Winter Bundle color Mistletoe you can purchase that {HERE} and I used the Pink and White Bundle color Cherry Lipstick you can purchase that {HERE}

Things I Love Sheer Mini

Hi friends...ScrappinAbby here and it's my turn to share another crafty project with all of you featuring some of the yummy 3GJ Crinkle Ribbon! 

 I recently ordered the Wine & Jewels bundle and it is DIVINE!! I love it. I paired it with the Halloween Harvest, Christmas Candy and Tuxedo Crinkle Ribbon and they match perfectly with paper collection I chose for this sheer mini album. 

Love using the crinkle ribbon for binding my minis!!

I know there were a lot of photos to look through so thanks for sticking with me on this one. I just wanted to show you how versatile the crinkle ribbon is and all the different ways you can use it in your crafting projects. 

Thanks for checking out another ScrappinAbby project and I'll see you next time. 

Happy Crafting!!

Busy, busy, busy

Hi Everyone!

I want to show you what the Girls and I have been working on all weekend!

(We even got dad/hubby to help too!)

I want to thank everyone who ordered during our 5 hour Customer Appreciation sale.
I am completely overwhelmed by the response- and because I was totally unprepared for the huge demand, I'm running behind on shipping everything out.
Please be patient while I process all orders to prepare for shipping.  We are experiencing longer times than normal, but expect to have everything on its way by the end of the week.

Thank you all again!

You all Rock my World.
Thanks for allowing me to make pretty ribbon for you!

Valentine Altered Canvas

Happy Valentine's Day everyone.  This is Cheri from DJ's Sundries and I am so happy to be sharing on the day that we celebrate everything about love.  The project that I am sharing with you today has been in my mind for a long time as a gift for my husband.  However when I sat down to make it, it took a completely different direction than I had originally planned.  Also, this project was inspired by Pinterest.  Head over to my blog if you want to see a picture of the inspiration.  For now, lets get started with the project.

3 Girl JAM "Christmas Candy" ribbon
12X12 canvas
K & Company Valentine's paper
Prima Flowers
Recollections Leaves
Icicle Stickles
Tattered Angels Glimmer Spray in "Candy Apple Red" and "Tutu Pink"
Tim Holtz Seasonal Paper Stash and swirl mask
Heart charm
Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge
Owl and Thistle "French" doilie
Mod Podge

The canvas was first sprayed with the Candy Apple Red spray using the negative space of some hearts that I cut out for another project earlier in the month.  I then sprayed a small heart in Tutu Pink between the bottom 2 hearts.  I think the detail was lost from that heart though.  The Tim Holtz mask was applied on one side of the canvas and sprayed with Tutu Pink.  It was then alternated on the other side and sprayed.  If you head over to DJ's Sundries, you can view the video that walks you through the canvas.
Thanks for stopping by.  Remember to take some time to enjoy the little things.

Hello all, Happy Monday!  Jovan here from cards by Jovan.  Are you ready for Valentine's day? I finished all my cards in time and they all sold...YAY!!!!  Today I'm showing you one of the cards I made.  
For this card I used a cuttlebug folder to emboss and cut out the heart middle.  I cut out a heart using my ciruct and added a Pink by design sentiment.  I added Holly Berry crinkled ribbon for a pop and made my bow using the FABULOUS 3 Girl JAM bow maker.  

I hope you have a great day and a wonderful Valentine's day!
